Unfortunately, the issue you highlighted regarding your current employer, will also be found in a hospital.
When I worked in med-surge (seven months), patients were routinely admitted who shouldn't have been admitted, or were kept at the teeny-tiny hospital, when they should have been sent out to the large, nearby teaching hospital.
I have been a nurse for almost two years. And during that time, I have held FOUR jobs. I have yet to find one that I like, and treats patients in a way I feel good about.
Well, let me say that my first job, did treat patients appropriately, but as a new grad, the unit and work required was above my education level.
I currently work at a sub-acute rehabilitation hospital. They routinely take in folks who are too sick to do rehab. We have one on our unit now, on a trach, who loses her oxygen level with the least bit of movement. She can't do rehab!
Believe me, I understand your angst. And there are lots of folks on this Web Site who have found their niche as a nurse. I am envious.
But I learned that healthcare in the United States is nothing more than a business (even when working at a non-profit), with little regard for actual patient care.
Best wishes, and I hope somebody has some good advice to offer you.
